Alan Tate says yesterday's result won't have too much of an effect on where the team's finish in May, as Cardiff City evened things up in the Derby with a 1-0 win courtesy of a late Craig Bellamy strike.
The defender said that the Swans have to quickly move on, pick themselves up and look to bounce back next weekend as they travel to Middlesbrough.
With 16 games to go there's another 48 points available, and automatic promotion is still the aim despite suffering a small setback in our hopes for a top 2 finish.
'It doesn't make any difference to us really,']
'It's not going to affect us going up or [our] play-off push. It's a one-off game with 16 games to go.'
'That game isn't going to get Cardiff up. We just move on to Middlesbrough and try and win that game,'
'You can't get down for too long because if you do you start having a mountain to climb. We don't want that.
'We want to keep everything in our own hands. The quicker we move on the better.'
Tate, like many fans I'm sure, thought the game was heading for a draw but Bellamy found a winner with just 5 minutes remaining with a stunning, curling strike from 30 yards or more.
'I thought it was a draw game to be honest, but at the end of the day the best player in this league [Bellamy] has popped up with a real good goal.
'He's done it and that's what he gets paid for. He will probably tell you himself he wasn't in the game much but all it takes is that one moment and that's what these type of players do.
'He has come up with a world-class finish and hats off to him.
'We just didn't hit the target and I don't think either keeper had a save to make. The only time Dorus [de Vries] had something to do was pick the ball out of the net with a great finish.'
